Be who you are

July 13, 2015

Challenge 13: 
What is your favorite quote or a quote that means a lot to you.


I believe my older sister showed me this quote when I was in college, I think it was after a bad break up, making new friends, rethinking old ones, you know all the amazing things that happen in while you are in your 20's. :) Anyway, it really made me stop and think and has been my "go to" for just about everything. 
Now fast forward a few (okay a lot) of years to when I got to meet this pretty lady.


The first time I met her I knew this girl knew my soul and I knew hers. 

Be who you are and say what you feel
because those who mind don't matter
and those who matter don't mind
-Dr. Seuss

This girl gets me unfiltered one hundred percent of the time and doesn't mind a bit, and I don't mind that she really doesn't have a filter. :) I am with out a doubt myself when I'm around her and it is a great feeling.  If I could tell my high school/college self I would say:

Be who you are and say what you feel
because those who mind don't matter
and those who matter don't mind
-Dr. Seuss

A friend will come around who you will love like a sister. You will have pictures of her children and family on your shelf just like they are your family because they are. 


That if you are true to yourself a friend will come along who will love you for who you are, challenge you to be better, and remind you to breath. 


A friend will come along who call tell by the sound of your voice on the other end of the phone that you are weary and will have coffee ready for you and will love on your baby while you unload all the worries of your world. 


And that same sweet friend will show up at 9 in the morning with a smile on her face to watch your daughters cheer practice because Jacey wanted her there, and she will come and sit at the library during story time because you wanted her there.  All because she matters and doesn't mind. 


Be who you are and say what you feel
because those who mind don't matter
and those who matter don't mind
-Dr. Seuss
